Building Walls

 

Brick by brick, I’ve built these walls.
Time after time, my emotions fall.
I don’t want to be hurt anymore,
So brick by brick, I’m building walls.

I’m torn inside, I can’t figure it out…
Did I build these walls to keep me in,
Or to keep you out?

Step by step, I expanded the distance.
Hurt after hurt, erased my existence.
I can’t take being hurt anymore,
So brick by brick, I’m building walls.

I’m hurt inside, I can’t figure it out…
Did I build these walls to keep me in,
Or to keep you out?

One by one, they leave me dry.
I fight back the pain through the tears I cry.
I won’t let myself be hurt anymore,
So brick by brick, I’m building walls.

I’m alone inside, I can’t figure it out…
Did I build these walls to keep me in,
Or to keep you out?

Piece by piece, the puzzle is shown.
Loss after loss, I’m destined to be alone.
I can’t let myself be hurt anymore,
So brick by brick, I’m building walls.

I’m numb inside, I wish I could feel again…
These walls were built to keep you out,
But mostly, to keep me in.
